Master of Finance
Traditional finance jobs are disappearing as digital currencies, automated investing, mobile banking, and high-frequency trading require leaders to bring a new set of technology skills to decision making.
The STEM-designated* Finance master’s program reflects the unique blend of technology, analytics and data skills required of professionals in this field, to confront the challenges of today and to better understand the business opportunities of tomorrow.
As a result of this careful curricular design, several important organizations — the CFP Board, CFA Institute and the Global Association of Risk Professionals — have recognized the Stevens master’s in Finance as providing unique value to students who complete these programs.
In addition to its curricular design, the Finance program remains relevant through its Hoboken location, putting the campus a 10-minute train or ferry ride from Wall Street.
*A STEM-designated program allows students from outside of the U.S. to be eligible for a 24-month extension of their Optional Practical Training (OPT).
